The mobile users % has raised so much in this year, so a mobile version would be so helpful. I know there are extensions doing that but nothing would be as good as coming with default package. Can we see the mobile version very soon?

I think just http through browser version would be good enough especially for theme developer, app across different platform and all different kind of phone/tablet would make stuff to messy.

I believe v2.0 has this but there is no ETA for this version.

I am not so sure, if this ever happens, it could be the beginning of the end of Opencart, as we know it.

In an efficient working mobile Application, there is practically no room for Add-On's or Enhancments, offered by 3.th party suppliers. When visiting a Shop by a Mobile Phone, Speed, Visibility, Handling, those things count, nothing else. Downloading large images and lots of Code just adds up to the bill. Under such Circumstances, what could possibly be added to Software? Who would possibly still be able to make a Living out of it, like it's done with the present >system< ?

I expect some peoples to develop, sooner or later, (phone-) clean and efficient Mobile Shop Software, possibly based on (some) OC-Technology. But it would mean to fully 'rework' existing OC Software as well, it's, for such a pourpose, massivly overloaded, as it comes, already. But then, such Mobile-specific Software could easy carry a price-tag of several hundred Dollars each, just to get back a good Value for the time and knowledge invested to do it.

Personally, I think, it would be easier to start from scratch, by not even touching (existing) OC-Software, for a Mobile Shop, and place it on it's own URL. OC has been developed, based on PC's, efficient Servers and ever faster Datastreams. As a consequence of the OC-Structure choosen, the RESULT has grown into a (kind of) Code-Dinosaur. To be used as simple, (mostly) monolanguage / monocurrency-SHOP (only), it's aleady a technical Overkill. The (usually used) default DB already contains uncounted Lines, full of never ever (again..) used data...

I am not intending to sound critical, I just like to analyze Facts and then try to put 'em in words. I don't even use a Smartphone, I like big Screens and it's (still) just to expensive to use SmartPhones around here to visit the Web for such Doings. In addition, thinking of some OC-Welcome-Pages, already consisting of 3+ MegaByte of Data, one could go broke, before having finally placed an order on an OC driven Site, by such a Task.

Mobile Webpages are, for Webdesigners, a task, similar to 'going back to the Roots', concentrating on Basics, less on Schi-Schi. One can follow that Trend, or one can resign, sooner or later. There is no alternative.

I would be surprised, if my predictions would turn out to be false...

Opencart v2 is going to have a responsive template, so in that effect, it will be mobile ready.

However, as ip_cam points out, using responsive templates is not always the best solution for mobile and you might want to look at the other options in the extensions store that creates a mobile store from opencart. They are more striped down and run better than trying to use a responsive theme I've found.

Running Opencart v2.2 with multi-stores from http://www.labeshops.com which has links to all my stores.

With v2 being a responsive design I think mobile will be pretty much covered once v2 is launched as a stable product. It should see more responsive designs being added by the community (the default v2 design is very appealing though!) and is also what Google recommends.

I'm a new OC user (only had a store live for a few weeks) and even though I know you said you know there are extensions available I recommend you check out Open cart mobile framework at http://bit.ly/TOVc1u. I tried the lite version and it was ok so I bought the full basic version. I had several issues but over the course of a week or so all issues were solved by their very responsive support people.

Sometimes I really think the cell phone jammer is really a necessity in schools. A lot of students are immerging in texting during classes.This is annoying. I saw the site sells 4G Signal Jammer but I don't know whether I can buy one for the sake of classroom order.

I think just a http/php web browser version would be great enough. It is true that there are too many different phone/tablet size out there now, making apps for so many possible size are like impossible to be closed to nice. There are many famous forum like AV forum or overclock.net using http/php web browser version for mobile and it works pretty well.
